Question regarding how to monitor for maxdir using OUM

Hello All--


I am working on a monitor that will allow me to alert on directories that are in a warning state for approaching maxdir size.  I obtained these steps that I have followed from this forum (I believe, but cannot seem to find the link anymore):


# dfm alarm create -E [email] -h maxdirsize-limit-reached --l 00:00 -m 23:59 -v Information


Once verifying the filer option `options wafl.maxdirsize`, I then triggered the alert condition on the filer by creating a directory exceeding that threshold.  I am seeing entries in /etc/messages but I am not receiving the alerst that I would expect to.


Has anyone tried this before that could provide me some additional feedback on what I might be doing wrong here?

Thank you,
